They wash really well, pack small and they’ll ship! What’s not to like?
If you’re at all like us you’ll be struggling with planning Christmas and getting it all done on time. We had several years of having to drag home the runty Christmas tree that no-one else wanted at the garden centre – well, at least we helped it fulfil its Christmas destiny.
But if you want a great tree, delivered to home with minimal fuss and no scratches on the roof of the car or needles in the back then Croft and Cole should be just what you need.
Launched recently by driver Tom Onslow-Cole and Rebecca Jones this start up is well worth making time for! www.croftandcole.com
Travel Destinations tell me sales are going very well but they still have some bargains.
They DO sell gift vouchers which I think is a brilliant idea. They also have 2020 Classic Le Mans on sale already.
For LM19 they have public camping available for £225/person (assuming two to a car) including camping, crossing and entry tickets from Thurs to Mon inclusive. www.lemansrace.com to browse or call the team on 01707 329988
Love this next one: it’s a great excuse to go to the shop if you happen to be at the Nürburgring but if you cannot get there then the online shop still has these for sale. It’s the Nürburgring Monopoly set. Available at www.nuerburgring-shop.de and priced at 49.95 Euros
No, I don’t understand why the Llama is suddenly everywhere but let’s not worry about it. Two years ago I acquired some fabulous Christmas decorations and now every website seems to have them (well…every Christmas decorations website anyway..)
I like the fluffy fun ones at www.dibor.co.uk and they are £5.50.
www.notonthehighstreeet.com has lots. That website also sells a great ‘Fa la la la la, la la llama’ T shirts in a variety of colours so that you can all embrace your Christmas Llama-ness. £22.
Books for Christmas were always a favourite in our house when I was a child and they continue to be just as important now.
One favourite which came out a little while ago is the David Hobbs biography which our Young Andrew Marriott assisted with. Buy it for the picture work as much as for the text. You can hear Hobbo’s voice while you read it! That’s ‘Hobbo: Motor racer, motor mouth’.
Then there is the hefty tome ‘Hurley:From the beginning’. It’s wonderful.
It also has a picture of Joe Bradley in it! It isn’t cheap and I couldn’t find it on UK Amazon but in the US you can buy it from www.hurleybook.com FOR $95.59. Overseas buyers will need to email the publisher – email address is on the website
We love Motorsport Magazine and they also have a great gift shop online.
I especially like the oil can mugs and the variety of cufflinks but there’s loads to choose from. www.shop.motorsportmagazine.com
No discount codes for the shop BUT we do have a very special subscription offer which will give you a copy of the Kimi hardback plus an additional 3 or 6 issues free depending on which option you pick www.motorsportmagazine.com/rlm
IMSA’s 50th anniversary will be marked by lots of activities but the first big item on the list was their very special book marking the birthday.
At $175 it isn’t cheap but it is stunning and it is a limited print run. Get it at IMSA.com while stocks last
Our great friends at Stickers4 not only have a full range of RLM and MWM stickers (currently reduced in time for Christmas) but at their main site they have all sorts of great Christmas window stickers for the home. Go to www.stickeredup4LeMans and also www.stickers4.com
And finally….did you know it’s now possible to grow tea in Great Britain? No, neither did we until last year when Aston Martin’s Peter Cate introduced us to Tregothnan tea.
It’s become a real favourite and this year the Tregothnan website has a variety of Christmas tea hampers and also a special Christmas tea. It’s a big estate down in Cornwall and they have very smartly diversified, so take a look at their beautiful Christmas wreaths and Christmas table centres. They kindly sent me a wreath last year and it lasted until March!!! www.tregothnan.co.uk
